$40.00 $44.00

The Marchand & Burch Villages Chardonnay is sourced from our Mount Barrow vineyard inthe Mount Barker sub region of the Great Southern. Across the many Chardonnay blocks on Mount Barrow, a variety of clones have been planted. The vine density on this site is 2,222 vines per hectare and the canopy a single cordon with vertical positioning of shoots.

"Fruit intensity and purity stand resolutely at the forefront of this wine, yet it is the fine acidity and restrained minerality typical of Great Southern Chardonnay that sets it apart. The complex and layered bouquet is characterized by cool climate fruit notes of pink lady apple, poached pear, white grapefruit, and preserved lemons. Underneath the lofty, enticing fruit lies undercurrents of savoury oak in the form of oatmeal, struck match, caramel, sweet spice, and fresh pastry. The palate is built around this wine’s juicy natural acidity that glides from the front palate all the way through to a dry finish imparting notes of vanilla bean, nutmeal, and sweet citrus along the way. Drink now and over the next 5 years."
